About this listing
I have a private bedroom with a full bathroom (hall bathroom), in my clean, updated 3 bedroom home centrally located in Mt. Pleasant, right off the Isle of Palms connector. My home is less than 3 miles from the Isle of Palms beaches.
Enjoy comfortable accommodations in your own bedroom with private full bathroom in my clean, updated 3 bedroom home centrally located in Mt. Pleasant, right off the Isle of Palms connector. My home is in a very quiet, safe neighborhood and is less than 3 miles from Isle of Palms, 6 miles from Sullivans Island, and 11 miles from downtown Charleston. Come enjoy Charleston’s historic culture, renowned and fabulous night life! Mt. Pleasant has everything you need, including numerous grocery stores, Towne Center shopping, a library, post office, banks, plentiful restaurants and bars, fantastic attractions, beautiful parks, and outdoor recreation such as tennis, kayaking, and boat tours. The bedroom is furnished with a queen-sized bed, dresser and plenty of closet space. The bed has quality bedding and mattress. I also have towels and basic toiletries for your use and a washer and dryer you're welcome to use should you need to during your stay. Free, fast wi-fi is available throughout the home. The kitchen, with an eat-in area, is available to guests as well as use of the rest of the home. You're welcome to use the fully equipped kitchen. I have a Cuisinart coffee machine, Cuisinart Convection Toaster Oven Broiler, and a microwave that is also a convection oven. Please feel free to bring any food or drink items you like and use the refrigerator. I also have a gas-grill on the back deck that you're welcome to use. There are vaulted ceilings in the family room with a wood-burning fireplace and a door that opens to the private backyard with deck, perfect for grilling out or relaxing watching the wildlife in the pond. The family room has a TV if you just want to kick back and relax. There is on-site parking, in the double driveway. To take full advantage of what the Charleston area has to offer you really need a car. Although car rental places are everywhere, prices are generally better if you rent one at the Charleston Airport. Thrifty, Enterprise, and Advantage are usually the cheapest options. The weekends are much cheaper for car rentals. You can often get a small car Friday through Monday for less than $75. But if you don't have a car, the CARTA bus system is available for transportation. The nearest bus stop is a 10 minute walk away. Buses go to Charleston, Isle of Palms and Sullivans Island. I have an 11 year old Labrador Retriever, named Zoe, who is extremely well behaved, great with everyone she meets, and sleeps in my room. You're welcome to bring a well-behaved dog, or other animal, of your own for an additional fee of $10/night. I work as a realtor at Carolina One Real Estate, and my schedule varies, so please feel free to come and go as you please. I will also gladly provide you with personalized recommendations for restaurants/attractions and anything else that will help make your visit more enjoyable. For those of you who are visiting to explore the wonderful Charleston area, there are some visitor guides and maps in the room for your use while staying here. Don't hesitate to ask if you have additional questions!
Guests have access to everything in my home. Nothing is off limits! If you arrive, and I am not at home, I will leave you a key and let you know where that will be.
Interaction with Guests
I interact with my guests as much or as little as they want.
No smoking inside, but you can smoke outside on the front porch or out back on the deck. All I ask is of you is cleanliness and consideration! Please pick up after yourselves (clothes, towels, etc in the bathroom; dishes in the kitchen). The kitchen is available for self-serve meals. I have a coffeemaker that you're welcome to use. Please be sure to turn off any appliances after use. There is almost always milk and fruit juice in the fridge, and you can help yourself to any food items that may be available. Check the cabinets for cereal and snacks. You are welcome to use the kitchen to prepare any meals.
We really enjoyed staying at Margaret's. Comfy and welcoming. Easy to find. Great location for our needs. Margaret was very helpful with recommending restaurants and local sights. She gave great directions! Zoey (the Lab) is very welcoming too!
We're absolutely fans of Margaret and her home! When I say we, I mean my entire family! We rented the whole home and my mom, my sister's family, my wife and her brother all stayed at Margaret's and everybody loved every loved it. My wife and I are repeat customers so we knew they'd like it. Margaret's home is idealy located only minutes away from Isle of Palms, stores, and right around the corner from the road that leads all the way to historic downtown Charleston. The best part is that if you come home at night, you can make use of her backyard by the pond, sit back and relax with a beer or two with everybody. That's exactly what we did. Did I mention how clean the place is, and how nice Margaret is? You won't regret it.
This was our first experience with Air BnB. We learned about them from a TV show the founder was a guest on. After difficulty finding a hotel with pet services, I remembered this website. They were easy to use and super helpful. Margaret's place was perfect for what we were looking for. Quiet, clean and super cute. Easy to find and she is super sweet. It put a spark in us to want to explore the rest of the World! Thanks for letting me share!
Margaret was a wonderful host! She gave us great tips on where to eat dinner, and the place was kept super clean. We actually had to make a last minute arrangement to stay with her on the day-of, and she had our room all ready for us, which was amazing! The house is near the beach and 15 minutes from downtown Charleston.
Margaret is the definition of "Southern Hospitality".
My son and I had a great experience while visiting Charleston.
This charming home is in an extremely safe neighborhood that is perfectly located in central Mount Pleasant. Only 15 minutes to downtown Charleston, 10 minutes to beaches, 10 minutes to our favorite restaurants on Coleman and Shem Creek, and just around the corner from Towne Center with shops, restaurants and a great Regal movie theatre!
Margaret is a wonderful host - very friendly and pleasant to talk to. The house is very clean and close to the beach. She light up her beautiful back yard for us at night to sit outside and enjoy a drink. Her dog is also very well behaved. If I am going to Charleston, Margaret's place will be our choice.

About the Host, Margaret
I am originally from Isle of Palms, SC and have lived in Mt. Pleasant since 1991. I share my daughter´s passion for horses, and I love to spend time at the beach with "my other daughter," my Labrador Retriever, Zoe. Mostly, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
